The Woman in the Wall: S1 E1: Back to Life  Season 1, Ep 1

Summary from IMDB: "When Lorna Brady wakes to find a corpse in her house, she has no idea who the dead woman is or if she's responsible for the apparent murder; retracing her steps, Lorna realizes that the mysterious woman could be linked to her past." There are two mysteries here. One is a police procedural concerning a current crime or crimes. The other concerns Lorna-- a survivor of the Magdalene Laundry system whose child was stolen from her and who is dealing with heavy emotional fallout, to the point where she cannot trust her own perceptions, giving her half of the story an eerie quaility. Review from the New York Times (gift link) may be spoilerific
